Jen, Jamila, Christen and I have signed up to do the Avon 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk in Charlotte on October 27-28.  We’re all CPA’s and met while working at EY, so we (Christen) came up with the super clever team name “Walkin’ for our Assets”.  Between now and October, you’ll be seeing some blog updates related to training and the walk.  Christen is still a part of our team, but is now “knocked up” with twins, so she’ll be walking vicariously through us the end of October.  We’ll have to Skype her during the walk and such.  I’m really excited about it (insert jazz hands) and can’t wait to start raising money.

Speaking of… here’s a link to our team page.  And here’s a link to my fundraising page.  Stay tuned for more updates, including a training video recently shot.  Oh yeah.

Nicknames for the team:

Jen = JB(a) (recently married, so we have to accomodate the new initial)

Jamila = JAM (see James Brown video at the 1:05 mark)

Christen = Little Dipper (inside crockpot joke)

Me = Tina Turner Legs/Jazz Hands (cause they’re my favorite)

And last but not least… the special lady I’m walking for!
